wardi - the coverage as it was, was to be expected so I won't lose any sleep over it. On the other hand Dave moorcroft was commentating on the great Birmingham run on C5 yesterday morning and I thought he was excellent. Bbc should do themselves a favour and boot foster and bring in moorcroft!

Lev - nicely done at the cabbage. You're in really good shape, well recovered from Berlin. Im going to do london as well as Edinburgh. Quite fancy having a go at doubling up. It's also useful to have a back up to london in case I get ill!

Some solid runs today whcih is really nice to see.

ALP nice podium and PB gets a standing ovation. Nice one.

Ryan lovely stuff. Sub 2:45 is very solid indeed. Much more to come on a calmer day.

TickTock, Dan well done for doing what it says on the tin.

DrD - lots of issues, ill, bad marshalling, hydration, lack of sleep, fairly new to running. 12 minute PB. Loads more to come off next time.

TJB - congrats on the PB and a nice step towards the magic marker.

LS21 bet that one felt good, especially with the shitty weather!

Still no run, getting (a lot) fatter.

Sorry for disappearing below the radar again, I've been too busy eating! Not sure what sort of weight gain I've managed this week. Going to leave it until Sunday to find out but I think it will probably be classed as a fair effort and won’t be surprised to see an increase of c8lbs.

Padams, sub 2:20 is the obvious next target I suppose but I'm not going to kid myself that it'll be easy to get there. The campaign and the race really couldn’t have gone any better. Only thing that might have been better had I not had a really sore foot for the last few miles. It was a build-up of dead skin under my right foot. I doubt if it made much more than 15-20secs difference, if at all though.

Relieved to hear SL's heart is in good order. And good to see you getting back into it.

Dan hope the ankle is better.

CW - you will be below 75 again before too long. Keep at it!

Lev NYC sounds like it'll be a great experience and as I've said elsewhere you look to be in top shape. But remember always to race the course and conditions. If 2:30 doesn’t come this time it probably will next!

Selbs - looking in good nick, hope the knee settles and remember the Imodium. We want no repeats of Abo 2010.

TJB - good luck for Sunday, Dan, AlP, DrD, TickTock, Ryan likewise.

Wardi - nice one on entering Barca. One to think about for the future. I will be watching the highlights on Sunday. Would be nice to get on the tellybox.

Re carb deplete and load, I've done it twice and I defo felt better on the start line and in the early stages because of it. TBF I ran those races better than previous ones so it could be in my imagination that it works. While the theory I suppose is slightly flawed and what KD says makes complete sense, if you think it works for you it probably does. Re the weight gain side of things, I actually managed to lose 1lb in the last week. My weight went form 140lbs before carb deplete, down to 135 after deplete and then back up to 139 on race day morning. I guess I was running at a reasonable calorie deficit through the three days of deplete and then topping up with extra calories for load phase still didn’t maintain weight. I was proper reet skinny I tell thee.

Not run a step yet, but getting an itch to get back at it. Really would like to use this as a platform to push on

Holy smokes RS - hope it wasnt too painful!

Sorry ON7 - yes I did 2:22:49. Looks like a cracking PB from you.

Cheers for the kind comments guys. Dont really post here enough to deserve any mention to be honest but still an avid reader! TR has hit the nail on the head really. I have believed I was a sub 2:25 runner for the past couple of years but have a few impacted campaigns as well as one badly executed race in spring 2013. Just very happy to have really nailed it all (campaign and on the day) and got very lucky with the conditions. The course was pretty special too PB wise!

Thanks for the shout Wardi - sorry I wasn't in too much mood for chatting!

Yes really chuffed with that run. I knew I had a time like that in me. Turns out getting pretty lean, being uninjured and running lots of miles seems to work. Think that marigold might be onto something. I basically copied his training but with slightly less mileage (topping out at 123mpw).

Good to meet marders too. Well done fella. Not a bad training run - hope you've warmed up by now!

Steve, Daniels follows a periodisation approach so as Jools says you won't really be able to see if his method works for you in that time frame as you won't be able to do all the different phases. That said it's defo worth doing a few of his sessions over the next few weeks as they are pretty testing and good fun. 

I followed daniels for for my half pb in 2012 but that was for a good 13/14 weeks I think. Thought it was a great schedule although pushed me to the brink a few times in terms of injuries.

Bizarre. Really is.

No. Combination of injury not properly shifted, slow recovery from Edinburgh and massive post smidgen-PB blues left me wondering what's the point! Sure I'll be reet though - seeing those great performances today has really inspired me that I just need to get the shoes back on and be sensible. London 2015 2:24 is my target. Base starts tomorrow.

Looks like you're in fairly fine fettle mate, any races coming up?
